The Google Sightseeing Forums Are Go For Launch!
Friday, 8th June 2007 by James Turnbull
As long as you haven’t been hiding under a rock, then you’ll have heard about Google Maps’ new Street Views, which allow you to walk down the virtual streets of 5 major U.S. cities. Unsurprisingly perhaps, there’s been a great deal of interest in the bizarre, humorous and risqué sights captured in these new images.
We’ve been getting loads of submissions of these findings, but as they’re mostly not of the kind of thing that we normally post on Google Sightseeing, we’ve instead decided to start Street View Sightseeing on our brand new Google Sightseeing Forums!
The Street Views forum allows you to post your own findings to share with the rest of our readers, and every now and then we’ll pick out the very best and feature them here on the main page of Google Sightseeing.
As well as the Street View forum, today we’re also launching a General Discussion Forum where users are free to discuss anything at all, Google Sightseeing related or otherwise. So please take a moment to register an account and say hello on the forums!
We’ll be developing the forums further over time, but for the moment a handy advantage of registering is that your account will be integrated into Google Sightseeing, so you’ll be able to post comments without entering your details over and over, and you’ll even be able to edit your own comments!
Finally, please bear in mind that our forums are still being actively developed (as always, this is a beta) so may be a little rough around the edges at the moment! (If you have any feedback regarding how the forums look, how they work, or how you’d like them to work, then let us know in the Bugs / Feature Requests area.)
